A Japanese boxwood netsuke depicting a sinuously coiled snake around a turtle, with the latter’s eyes crafted from horn. The craftsmanship shines through the intricately carved details of both animals: the snake’s wrinkled skin and the turtle’s shell are rendered with extraordinary precision, imparting a sense of realism and authenticity to the piece.

The excellent patina enveloping the netsuke adds a subtle sheen, further elevating the sculpture’s aesthetics. This netsuke becomes a tribute to the beauty and diversity of the animal kingdom, capturing attention with its artistic execution and delicate radiance.
